Hello. A bit newer collector trying to find her way to these circles.
Basics would be that I'm an 18 year old girl from southern Finland. Naturaly, english is not my first language and on top of that I at times somehow skip words when writing, so sorry before hand for odd typos!
One of my few passions is old toys such as Pokemon cards, Digimon and Lion King plush toys, and of course, G1 My Little Ponies.
I never had ponies as a kid. I wasn't a big fan of girly toys expect for Littlest Petshops, and to top that LPS were cheaper than G3 My Little Ponies. Despite that I had Desert Rose and Secret Wishes as a child.
G1 MLPs came to my life a lot later in a bit of an odd manner: I was thrifting as usual back in 2016. I knew some old ponies were valuable and I had heard of nirvanas via mirage Pokemon plush info posts, so I tried to find rarities to sell forward. I managed to spot G1 Red Roses for an euro, and of course bought her. But it didn't really go as planned, after a few hours I was totaly in love with her! (And kept her)
 After that I slowly started buying more ponies, and later on it became one of my main collections. I also fell in love with restoring these lovelies, I find it relaxing. Rerooting and mold removing I have still never tried, but plan to try stronger chemicals with a slightly moldy Remco fakie.
 Nowadays I skip almost no pony while thrifting, and my collection stands at 40 brightly colored ponies, including even such rarities as Azul Celeste the piggy pony, Regentropfen, and the Surprise Twins ponys blue baby. I don't buy a lot online partly due to shipping costs, and over half of my collection consists of thrifting miracles. (Including all three listed before!)
Some of my favorite ponies from my own collection are Tex, Polly, Star Hopper (bought online unlike the rest listed), Azul Celeste, Northstar and Rain Feather. :) My dream ponies I probably never will achieve are mail order Star Hopper (lighter colored) and brazilian Truly!
 A couple of G3s and their playsets have also found their way to my collection, but they aren't that imporant for me. I hope this goes for an introduction. ❤
